Chanel Couture Spring Summer 2015 Paris

Tropical blooms were bursting on Chanel's spring/summer 2015 haute couture catwalk on Tuesday. Inside the vast Grand Palais space a rather intimate hot house had been erected and was the home to a white paper garden filled with dormant flora. 

But thanks to a very handsome green-thumbed gardener in a broad-brimmed hat who, with his trusty watering can, walked around the central arrangement sprinkling the set with invisible H2O, the flower bed finally opened into vibrant exotic blooms. 

Conversely, all the flower-embellished daywear attire in this collection did not feel as if it had alighted in Paris from some far-off vacation destination. Instead the brightly colored skirt suits that opened the show, their more youthful crop top fuller skirted offshoots, and a smattering of pencil skirt alternatives all looked like they could survive, and even thrive, outside a climate-controlled environment. 

The same could not be said of the beautifully embellished event ensembles designer Karl Lagerfeld concocted. The bold crystal-encrusted puff sleeved dresses, voluminous skirts hemmed with silk buds that accentuated the hips and the exposed waistlines of models, and in particular a mini floral cape all felt a bit foreign. Even the practical flat black boots and the youthful knitted veiled beanies covered in blossoms that finished off these ensembles couldn't make them feel quite germane. 

It was as if the horticulturalist of this haute couture garden had misdiagnosed the dosage of his fashion fertilizer this season. Daywear had hardy wardrobe staying power.  While its evening alternatives looked more like they would survive better under glass, protected from the elements and conserved for posterity.
